  1. The LFA is going to be a sweet car.. unfortunate for the creator though I hope that Lexus does something to honor his legacy..

    other odd thing is that they were driving against each other..

  2. Totally agreed, may he rest in peace…..

    I thought Nurburgring was a one way track, didn’t know that cars can come on the opposite direction…..
